. >> john: what does my crystal ball say about things like marijuana. >> what will happen to energy policy? >> this is horrible. >> dependence on foreign energy sources. >> who will obama appoint to the court. it will grow bigger? i'm told we are going over the cliff but that cliff is nothing compared to the real threat. what will we see in four more years? that is our show tonight. >> >> john: i'm ready for the next four years because i have got my crystal ball. first pu7b diswill scream about the fiscal cliff. first pundits will scream about the fiscal cliff a series of tax increases going into affect january 1st unless they work out a deal. they will. i can see it. they will meet, press conferences and predict disaster then reach a deal. it will not solve much but then the media will move on. america will continue to go broke. if i too cynical? and no. worse than that says congressman ron paul. predict the future. >> the future looks good people know that what we have today is not workable but short-term the people will not admit we're bankrupt or on the verge of a major major change in
. >> it is a nightmare. >> it is a total disasteto create chaos. >> drive the economy off the fiscal cliff. john: really? one says sequestration may be okay. russ roberts comment not a horrible crisis? >> government spending is 3.8 trillion. you will cut 100 billion? that is o deck chair on the titanic. john: it is good across the board. >> if their actual cuts. i would do 20% across-the-board but that scares people because they think let's save the things that are important and cut the things that arnot. it is all important. the tax increases sound scarier of 400 billion but we have a $1 trillion deficit. each year we spend $1 trillion more than we take 10. so to raise taxes by 400 billion we have already raised them 1 trillion in the future. it is probably a good idea to say the spending is not a free lunch. john: and they're not talking about get rid of deductions and make it simpler. >> tax reform is great there is good and bad some deductions wold be good some others may be not so good but the limitation to take advantage of the fiscal cliff would be good for the economy to simplify the tax code. j
fiction and has strong words for john mccain. >>> president obama meets with house and senate leadership to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. i think all of us agree on this and this is action. >> we'll have congressman chris van hollen here to expose the problem. >>> governor scott walker joins rick perry in opposition to health care. john nick els joins us with the latest. >>> secessionists are coming out of the woodwork. wait until you hear their reasons. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching president the right wing afelt to gin up a scandal is falling apart. republicans have declared the president is covering up information about benghazi. republicans gave us a pregame of accusations, involving ambassador susan rice. some house members say this is worse than watergate. >> this is not simply a coverup of a third-rate burglary. we have four of our diplomatic personnel dead and it has not a mccarthy era tactic to demand that the american people ares no misinformed about it to the point that they don't know what the th
with the kind of entrenched senate air stock ra si. who are they worried about beating them? someone like john mccain isn't that worried. he has been the most vocal voice. and it's hard to see whether those are going to reign him in. the question is do other people who care about their political future and have national aspirations, this they are more likely to likely to walk away from this conspiracy theory. >> we saw harry reid shut down the idea of there being a senate select committee, a mega investigation along the lines of watergate. we also saw resistance to that idea from richard mur, susan collins, joe lieberman, republican speaker of the house john boehner. i felt like that all isolated john mccain a lot. but you know, maybe he stands alone in terms of his influence on foreign policy matters. >> he does. but there's distance emerging between him and where everyone else is. and partly, we should remember this was very -- this was wielded to the election partly because there was this hope and you'd see it all over the conservative blogs. this was the thing that was going to turn around
're digging their heels in. instead we saw joshing around the table about john boehner's birthday between the president and john boehner. is it any different, or is this just about, i don't know, smoke and mirrors? >> well, i think the atmosphere is certainly different as you mentioned. in the past, these guys would go back to capitol hill and put out competing statements about what went on during the meetings. you saw what happened last year during the debt ceiling negotiations. this time it was one big happy family. there certainly seems to be some sort of recognition on the part of how fed up american people with sort of the seeing this game of chicken being played at such a high stakes time. i think there is certainly, after this election, there is kind of a let's get down to business. let's see if we can get this thing done. whether that can translate -- david just said, the biggest sticking point, taxes on the wealthy is still on the table. you can sing happy birthday to john boehner as much as you want. gwen: he would still say no. >> absolutely. i think it's really premature to tr
of the flesh is weak. the flesh is weak, but certain people have to be strong. this general john allen, who has taken over petraeus' job in afghanistan, may have sent 30,000 pages of e-mail to this tampa socialite -- >> or not. >> there is an interesting term, "tampa socialite." general allen is in charge of the fate of 82,000 u.s. troops. he does not have the time to -- >> well, i don't know about that. i don't know the content of those e-mails. i don't know those things. we don't know the nature of that relationship. this is a different relationship between allen and jill kelley and petraeus and broadwell. >> nina, why did the justice department tell the white house what was going on? -- why didn't the justice department tell the white house what was going on? >> if they had we would all be screaming cover-up. one of the things griffin bell insisted on is that he be told when a high level people were under investigation but he did not tell the president. the whole point was to have an honest investigation without compromising the president or the investigation. >> margaret, there was an elect
jennifer franciotti. lisa has the day off. >> first let's look at meteorologist john collins. not too bad out there. chilly. but feels warmer than it is. >> if you look up in the sky, beautiful start to the sky tonight, or early this morning i should say. meteor shower is in process. i didn't see any coming in, but there might be an occasional streak early this morning before sunrise. maybe even tomorrow morning. this morning, there's nothing on the radar nearby. so i have to pull the view back to a national view, try to find rain or snow or something. where we're seeing most of it is out ton west coast. it's been kind of stormy out there for the past week or so. bits and pieces of storms out in the pacific will be coming our way over the next week. we'll have to watch how they develop when they get near the atlantic ocean. the closest to us is down in florida along the atlantic coast line there. that's it. i mean, we're clear as a bell. it's a really nice morning. temperatures are in the 30s. what about the weekend? what about the week leading up to thanksgiving? it's in the forecast. >>
and john manley from canada. in your assessment of the new normal, i didn't hear any discussion of the impact a very strongly developing movements in the world for the, particularly impacting how comes that democratic elections as well as perhaps creating a certain amount of instability of governance models that we face. i'd be interested in the panel's assessment of the impact of fundamentalist religious movements and particularly in the context of what is going to be a new normal. a >> let's get one more in here. you can just use this. [inaudible] [inaudible] >> i would've been too much. i think what is so interesting about this discussion raised by author participants is the baseline question and just putting the question of the new normal in the context of america, american powder and leadership and i was just so does seen how powerful did america in 1979 after the tom, not very. how powerful did america look in 188910 years later extremely powerful. how powerful did america look in 1899? it looks essentially invincible. how powerful and 2009 now? we settled down, but we don
the president sat between house speaker john boehner and senate majority leader harry reid calling for cooperation and compromise. >> we've got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle-class families, that our economy remains strong, that we're creating jobs, and that's an agenda that democrats and republicans and independents, people all across the country, share. so, our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able to cooperate together, work together. >> joining me now for more, congressional reporter for "the washington post" ed o'keefe and national journal correspondent nancy cook. good morning both of you. last time we saw those three together, sort of a kumbayah moment when you have reid and boehner and mcconnell together. did you get a sense, ed, putting revenue on the table meant republicans were open to tax hikes for those makes $250,000 or more? >> no, they're not. they still say they don't want to see that increase. by talking about revenues the idea is you close loopholes, find a way to perhaps limit deductions and create revenue that way. but you know, b
but organizing this talk. and john phillips, a mechanical engineer, all over the world who is here and advised me on technical aspects of energy in the book and to read the will manuscript to check on scientific details of it. this is an appropriate day for talking about "regulating to disaster" because president obama promised once more to develop the energy sources of the future. when any administration, republican or democrat decides to develop energy projects, taxpayers had better watch out. governments get in the business of picking winners and losers which leads to cronyism and wasted taxpayer dollars. this is the question of industrial policy, whether government should support business ventures in new technologies that are unable to secure private funding. government appears to be worse at this than private markets from the records we have over the past five years. in contrast in a speech in california in may, mitt romney said, quote, the president doesn't understand when you invest like that in one solar energy company it makes it harder for solar technology generally because the other en
on fox. let's go in focus with steve forbes, elizabeth mcdonnel, victoria, john and morgan. good to have you all here. steve, unions putting their self interest ahead of shoppers and our economy? >> absolutely. they're still angry they haven't organized wal-mart yet. they're responding to competition and the needs of customers. that's what you're supposed to do in a free market. no one forces people to work at wal-mart. unions don't like the fact they haven't organized wal-mart. >> rick, these folks are getting paid overtime for working on thursday, right? >> yeah. let's keep in mind what this is about. it's really a one had day convenient. it's probably fair tore characterize it as a row test, a little bit more than a strike. not about wages or benefits. about work conditions, mostly in inland california area where they've had big problems with people working in way overheated warehouses, equipment that's not safe. this is what this is about. they've got a problem there. >> what the unions are doing, and again, wal-mart is not unionized, but the unions want the workers to walk out, they
no reason why employers can't cover their employees with health care. >> john, i will say this to you, this is not speculation. these are facts, the heads of these companies are actually making these moves and cutting down and then you've got perfect example of the guy that owns the 40 restaurants in florida, all the denny's, he says i'm going to cut back and add 5% to the bills of my customers to keep those insure that had i already have on the books. this is real. >> yeah. this is not wild speculation. this guy at denny's says it cost him an extra $5,000 per employee per year and says if i have to cover all of my employees, that's about $175,000 per restaurant. he said a lot of my restaurants don't make $175,000. so here is a guy who literally cannot afford obamacare and what he's saying is i'm going to have to cut guys back to 28 hours, those at the front. some have to get a second job because they can't afford to live just on 28 hours a week of pay. this is real life situations in these companies and the problem we have is just like tracy said, we had no health care reform. all we
. john mccain and lindsey graham said they will do everything in their power to block her confirmati confirmation. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> we haven't seen the president like that in a while. >> testy. defiant. kind of his make my day moment. go after her, make my day. i mean, in a way, and you could look at this two ways politically. you could say, okay, did he do that because now he's going to nominate her to be secretary of state when hillary clinton leaves or did he do it to get it on the record so when he nominates something else like john kerry, he is on the record saying you didn't cow me t not elect her. >> an unprecedented var eed shae vote being nonwhite, do republicans really want the first thing they do in 2013 is filibuster the nomination of a
workers are injured. and abc's john schriffen is in new orleans with the very latest. john, what do we know? >> reporter: well, bianna, good morning. we know that the coast guard launched the chopper just a short while ago to resume the search from the air. all night, they've been out in boats just like this one, using night vision goggles and infrared technology. so far, there's been no sign of the two, missing workers. but the coast guard is using the latest technology to find them before it's too late. it's an all-out effort from the coast guard's units from the air and the sea, for the 2 oil platform workers who have now been missing close to 24 hours. authorities have not revealed their names or even genders. but they believe they are out somewhere in the massive gulf of mexico, alive. the two disappeared after jumping into the water off the coast of louisiana when the oil platform they were working on suddenly exploded. the blast was so intense, black smoke billowed more than 1,000 feet into the air and could be seen 20 miles away on shore. black elk energy, the houston-based com
a single question, what are you willing to give. you know, when john boehner appears, they say are you willing to accept higher rates. no one says what are you going to do about entitlements or anything, there's no question of the president whether he will compromise and what that would look like. >> paul: steve, what do you think the republicans ought to do here? is there a way out for them or are they going to be pushed back into a corner where they have no choice, but to concede that they have to raise tax rates or else go over the cliff and get blamed for that? >> well, it's a tough situation for them. there's no question about it because as you know, the default position, if we don't do anything is for the taxes to go up on everybody on january 1st, and that's something i think both sides want to avoid. it's very interesting, the thing that happened this week to start the week, was who was the first person that barack obama met with in the white house since his election, the labor unions, the labor block, that tells a lot who is driving policy at least at the start of the second t
on booktv, a presentation of this year's paolucci bagehot book award winner, john fonte, author of "sovereignty or submission." during the dinner mr. fonte delivered a lecture based on his book. it's a little over an hour. [applause] >> thank you, mark. i'm very honored, and it's very flattering to be in such good company in previous winners of the paolucci/bagehot award. it's also a great honor to receive this from the intercollegiate studies institute which has done wonderful work in sustaining the core principles of american civic life. i also wish to extend condolences to the isa community for the recent loss of a greaptd lady and scholar, ann paolucci. finally, i'd like to acknowledge that henry paolucci was a stalwart defender of american national sovereignty, and i hope that -- he would have been pleased in presenting this award to me, as pleased as i am in receiving this. i'm going to proceed as follows. : first, i'm going to talk a little bit about what i call philadelphia sovereignty. second, i'm going to examine the ideas of the global governance project which challen
is representative john heck and peter king. here is their interpretation of the closed door hearings. >> the initial talking points put together in unclassified format at the house intelligence committee initially did state that al qaeda affiliated groups were involved. however, by the time we understand that went through its editing process after it left langley that reference was taken out. >> the fact is the best estimate of the intelligence community on september 15th and 16th was that there was direct al qaeda involvement. that was taken out. to me, again, if i had to presume i would say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out. because there was nobody in the director of national intelligence office. nobody in the cia that did it. so, it was someone else that did it. >> someone in the administration. if you go to the front page of foxnews.com right now you will see the big story on there that's racing raising the question in that piece. we will be speaking to peter king to try to figure out who the administration got the intelligence information their hands and said, okay

with abc news last week, house speaker john boehner said this about immigration reform. quote, while i believe it's important for us to secure our borders and enforce our laws, i think a comprehensive approach is long overdue and i'm confident myself, the president and others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all. later he tried to backout after he was called out by conservative tea party bloggers as well as conservative members of congress. this a sign that the tea party isn't quite over yet? >> and it's not. and i think sometimes the people who are left are the most extreme. and they're going the double down. and again, we're seeing this in indiana, for example, in texas, a little bit in georgia. so the people who are left are going to give it their all. but where we're going to see in the next two to three years is the pressure of needing to get electoral gains there is only so many elections you can lose before you change course. and that's going happen. maybe they can hang on for another two years. but beyond that, the math doesn't add up for repub
? >> that was speaker of the house, john boehner after congressional leaders met with the president, earlier today to try to negotiate a way to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. both sides of the aisle came out confident that a deal would be made before the january 1 deadline. but neither side provided specifics on how that is going to happen. after boehner's vague comments, there are new concerns that the speaker may give up way too much and agree to tax increases. i'm here to lay out exactly what he has on the table. congressman, good to see you. >> good to be with you, sean. >> sean: i am concerned because -- >> i am -- you and me both? >> i am concerned about caving. you have outgoing virginia governor mcdonald, and former governor haley barbour and others saying, maybe we can give in on these things. did any house republican get elected and say to their constit webts they would raise taxes? if they did, i didn't hear it. >> i don't know a single one. sean, this is not the time to be defensive. and of course, there are plenty of people who say i am very offensive. but this is a time to go on o
